Old animosity simmers between House Lannister and House Stark. Their disdain for one another is no secret among the noble Houses, and neither is the commanding presence of either House’s Lord on the battlefield. Lord Eddard Stark was a decisive commander during Robert’s Rebellion, and Lord Tywin Lannister is a notoriously cold and calculating war leader.

Keep the stuff coming FFG! =D
Thanks FFG! Looking forward to playing more BoW and now I have one more scenario to sink my (canine or feline, that is the question) teeth into.
